    Can i buy and use the magic bands if I buy my tickets from tickets at work? and not from disney?

    Hi, Janet! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so excited that you are planning a vacation at my favorite place on Earth- Walt Disney World Resort! MagicBands are convenient for so many reasons! A quick scan from Disney PhotoPass photographers will magically send your images to your My Disney Experience account and you can quickly scan your MagicBand to redeem your FastPass+ reservations without digging through pockets or purses to find your ticket! If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will receive a complimentary MagicBand as it acts as your room key, whether you purchase your Disney Theme Park tickets directly through Disney or through a third party. When staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can also link a credit card to your room and then you can make room charges by scanning your MagicBand. If you happen to be staying elsewhere, you can still purchase a MagicBand either ahead of time online, or right in a Disney Theme Park, Disney Resort hotel or Disney Springs. In order to be able to use the MagicBand, it will have to be linked to your My Disney Experience account, so I would recommend an advanced purchase, if possible.

    Happy planning and please come and visit us again soon!
